Over the weekend, Nebraska head coach Tim Miles provided yet another example why he is one of the nation’s most likable coaches.
He actively engages with fans, whether it be on Twitter or after the Cornhuskers land a big win at home. Also, leading Nebraska to its first NCAA tournament since 1998 has helped his image.
But Coach Miles is also a bit of a risk taker, playing 6-foot-4, 307-pound Detroit Lions defensive end and Nebraska alum Ndamukong Suh in a game of one-on-one on Friday afternoon.
Miles, who tweets halftime adjustments during games, shared his analysis of the game afterwards.
The first day of the 2014 NBA Draft Combine wrapped up on Thursday afternoon.
Earlier this week, it was reported that Andrew Wiggins, along with several other potential top picks, would not attend the two-day combine in Chicago. That didn’t stop Wiggins from making news on Thursday.
Wiggins was training at the Peak Performance Project (P3) when the company uploaded this photo to its Instagram page. It immediately went viral.
It’s insane athleticism like this, matched with his potential, that makes Wiggins the likely top pick next month.
In his fourth season as North Carolina Central head coach LeVelle Moton led his team into the NCAA tournament. However, he entered Friday’s game against No. 3 Iowa State in the East Region without his family in the stands, as his wife and daughter stayed behind to tend to his 1-year-old son who was hospitalized after suffering burns.
Following a 93-75 loss to the Cyclones, Moton returned home to his family, and shared this photo with his son on his Instagram page. Moton’s son will not suffer any long-term injuries.
Moton wrote in the caption:
“Made it home safely to see my son. This pic symbolizes a Father’s Love! Thx 4 ur Prayers!
The Eagles finished 28-6 (15-1 MEAC) on the season.
